Do your kids get involved with decorating for the Holidays? Have they tried stringing popcorn and cranberries to make a Holiday Garland? It's fun to get the kids and grandkids together to help out with all of the Holiday traditions, like decorating, baking and preparing for the Holiday parties! I got the grandkids to help string some popcorn and cranberries to make a Holiday Garland for the tree. We also made popcorn balls! Oh, we had a lot of fun listing to Christmas music and decorating the tree. Kids love to get involved with something crafty, so grab some popcorn, cranberries and have some quality family time together!
What are the holidays without traditions?If one family knows this answer best, it’s the Smith’s. The Smith family owns JOLLY TIME Pop Corn, an Iowan brand that has been handing down the American tradition of popcorn making for almost 100 years.
JOLLY TIME has banded together with another centenarian, family-owned business, Habelman Cranberry, to help you pass along a holiday tradition so antiquated that it began when there weren’t lights to put on trees: Stringing cranberry popcorn garlands. Festive and family-friendly, this beautiful craft will be sure to bring together the people who make it, as well as those you gift it to.
